Re: Scenic electronic handbrake failed after pad change
Not sure it's progress but i'll see if i can get the whole caboodle off the car today. The scenic (non grand) only has a single handbrake cable from the unit that then goes to a splitter type arrangement above the rear beam....this is this bit i'm struggling to get off, probably easy once you know how :lol:
I've nicked another pic that shows the arrangement (off the car!)
I'm hoping that maybe sorting the unit to look like that fist pic, sticking it all back together and popping it back on will make it good as new.
Failing that i might look to get it reconditioned (
seller will replace the motor for 150 and cables etc if needed) or maybe go down the manual conversion route...there's a guys that does the conversion for 500 (he's mobile) or will sell you a kit for about 300 and arrange for a local garage to reset the dash etc.
I'm reluctant to get a second hand unit as there seems to be still some question about programming....sounds like they do work but they won't necessarily be calibrated for the car properly.
